2011 has been a good year for the Zelda series, with Skyward Sword and Ocarina of Time 3D being released. But what’s next for the series?

Eiji Aonuma told a Portuguese gaming site, MyGames, that a new Zelda title will be made for the 3DS. Aonuma told the site:

We are already preparing a new game, a game in the series for the Nintendo 3DS, but don’t think that it is a direct sequel to the Zelda titles released on DS. We are talking about a new game, but it takes much of what has been done on previous handhelds.

Hang on, this doesn’t mean that there won’t be a Majora’s Mask remake. Nintendo has just decided that it wouldn’t seem right if they released remake after remake, so they now plan on making a completely new original Zelda game.

As Aonuma said:

It’s something I’m asked about often and I assure you that it is something I’ve spoken to Miyamoto about. But recently we released The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D as a remake. We are considering the idea, but it didn’t seem right to launch a remake one after another, so the next Zelda game on 3DS will be original.

What are your thoughts on this? Let us know in the comments!
